here in the united states, china will be transitioning to a new leadership. the new generation of leaders will guide china probably through the next decade. if given a second term to how does president obama see the opportunities in the transition? what measures with the president propose to take the new heads of state relationship? >> well, president obama reached out to hu jintao right after president obama was elected. and right after he took office. he's met with hu jintao more than any previous president had met with a counterpart. they have met something upwards of a dozen times. many phone calls. i'm sure that this pattern will continue with the next chinese leadership. the chinese haven't done us a favor yet of telling us who will be in the new leadership. that will be announced on november 8. i think we're all confident we know that the general secretary of the congress party will be xi jinping. will have a pretty good idea of at least four members of the politburo standing committee, and perhaps other members. i think, the important thing here is that china needs to resu

especially the middle east is an awfully messy place, in many ways in which the united states can't be expected, no u.s. president could be expected to solve and resolve everything. the blood shed in syria makes all of us shudder. that doesn't mean there is a u.s. policy option that will bring it to an end or even reduce it and most of the options i see in terms of trying to do more would exacerbate it. the full only other thing i can say as your question implies it is not just the u.s. but the other players in the region and with regard to the iranian issue as it -- as jocelyne said the same thing applied to syria. we should continue to work closely with our syrian allies, with the jordanians, jordan and iraq and syria, jordan iraq and turkey all have 100,000 refugees each in their countries at least. we can't do it all ourselves and our wish i could give you an ideal scenario but this isn't one. >> can i ask you? you were talking about it. how did the saudis and others view the possibility of militant extremists coming to the fore in syria. having to fight militant extremists at home

had a public policy in 1934 to get voice to every citizen in the united states and we were extremely successful. well over 90% voice penetration in the u.s.. in 1996 the telecom act reinforced that by even advanced services that everybody in the united states deserve access to these events services regardless of your urban or rural, in 1934 the path was daunting when you look at our vast areas. they had a commitment to be able to do it and today the public commitment has to be comparable. maybe the stakes are even higher in the sense that broadband has the ability to pull people together more than the interstate system did. the solution is relatively simple. we need to change our public policy from focusing on a voice to focusing on broadband and move support from voice to broadband accordingly and levels of support have to be comparable because there is no way that world consumer can afford the cost of that wine. there has to the support mechanism in place just like in the past so if we move to broadband which clearly is the communication of the future with comparable leve

going to be free riders on an international system that the united states has essentially created and that they will continue to develop their economy and their military capabilities along those lines. now, they specifically identify certain threats that they need to address, and i'll talk about those subsequently, but by and large, they see the environment as relatively stable and that they need to take advantage of that. secondly, another way of skinning this cat is looking at the party's guidance to the military. what is the party saying to the military in terms of how you need to prepare? the party has increasingly been making statements about the strategic guidance it needs to make to the party. and if you look at what the party has been directing to the military, that, to me, does not suggest significant change. for example, the party has been arguing that the military needs to continue to professionalize itself, it needs to improve its capabilities to meet certain threats that the party's facing, it needs to -- the military needs to face certain threats further afield to pr
